Program description

Study art and design in the creative hub of Nelson.

You'll develop the ability to generate innovative ideas and design solutions grounded in academic and technical excellence, effective use of visual language and extensive specialist knowledge in 2-D and 3-D design including painting, graphic design, animation, photography, digital video, illustration and jewellery.
